Frustrating to use

Summary: We've had this printer for two years, and it's not been a success. It's slow, often cycles for no reason, and it doesn't work happily with non HP brand toner cartridges. The print quality is fine, once you persuade it to print something. Most of our printing is black & white, so we need to replace the toner once the black is low. And it's terrible for printing photographs!
Summary: I bought this printer a couple of years ago, and it has never worked right. A very nice guy from India got the wireless working after an hour of fiddling around, but then, of course after the warranty was up, it failed again. Now I can't hook it up with a USB cable. The installation stalls after I connect it to the computer. The cartridges don't last long and cost a fortune. t won't buy another HP.
Travesty of a device - travesty of service - goodbye forever HP

Summary: I have bought HP printers exclusively since the early 1990s and have recommended them to dozens of people. They have traditionally been reliable, high quality, and long lasting. This device is a travesty. There is a known fault that can brick the printer with a firmware update. HP actually emailed me several months ago stating that there was a mandatory firmware update for this printer. I installed it exactly according to instruction.
Summary: I love this printer. I have 2 inkjet printers for art project and, prior to getting the CP1025nw, was my sole means of printing color prints. I now use the CP1025nw for most color document printing and my inkjets for my photo/art prints. Having the laser printer be my default printer for everyday prints, saves me tons on ink for the inkjet. I have only had to replace toner on the laser once, and that was for the black cartridge.
Summary: I bought this one as a replacement for my first laser printer which was a few years old and stopped working. I loved having laser over inkjet because I was able to print a lot without having to worry about having back up ink since it would run out so quickly. My father got me this one on sale during christmas time about 3 years ago. It was pretty simple to set up, and when it finally ran out of ink (a little over 2 years later) that was simple to replace as well.
Summary: It prints fine. Prints seem to come out darker than they are on the screen but at this price, I wasn't expecting brilliance. Here's the funny thing, one of our toners is out. It'll cost the same just to buy the printer again with the starter toners than it would to buy new toner. Talk about a disposable society!
